Wine Advocate 94
Medium to deep garnet-purple, the 2015 Zinfandel Old Vine offers a beguiling nose of crushed blueberries, Black Forest cake and crème de cassis with hints of dried roses, licorice, incense and tilled soil. Full-bodied, rich and with wonderful purity, it has an amazing frame of ripe, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long and perfumed.
Wine Spectator 93
Thoroughly old-school, offering briary cherry aromas and evocative raspberry, cracked pepper and dusty sage flavors that finish with zesty tannins. Drink now through 2026.

"Seghesio, based in Monforte, makes excellent wines that capture the best of the soft textural elements that are the hallmark of the modern school in Piedmont." – Antonio Galloni
The steep slopes of Seghesio's winery in Monforte d'Alba were not always carpeted in vines. It wasn't until 1964 when Ettore Seghesio, a tenant farmer working the land, saved enough money to purchase the farm from its owners – and had the foresight to plant vineyards of Nebbiolo! For many years, the family's grapes were sold off in bulk to other producers in the region. In 1998, Ettore's sons, Aldo and Riccardo, took over the family estate and began bottling wine under the Seghesio label. Their outstanding terroir, together with a perfect blend of traditional and modern vinification methods, results in the production of lovely wines that have been greatly praised by the Italian and international press. Riccardo is now at the helm of the estate after Aldo's sudden passing in 2010. In addition, Aldo's two sons, Sandro and Marco, and his daughter, Michela, now work full-time at the estate. This is truly a family operation steeped in tradition.
